BAZ Friday LXXXII – Underground Reco For Underground Maniacs

2 min read

Hello there,
Hope this week went well for all of you. Not easy to be out there due this world situation, but we need to continue and be strong. I know, words and bla bla bla. But we can’t give up. For that, at least to me, my Metal music is helping a lot. But… Not all music is good, according to the quality parameters of each one. So… I will mention one of those…

Band: Satanize
Title: Baphomet Altar Worship
Label: Helter Skelter Productions
Release date: 20 January 2021
Country: Portugal
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Black Metal
Time playing: 29:00
Cover/Music: 7/10 – 5/10
Details: Even if the cover is already a cliche, I like it. And… I have been following this band since the beginning… And… I have to say, this album is the weakest and most uninspired album. Always the same from the first song till the last one. They sound a copy + paste band. They lost their own style… But… That is my opinion, Check them…

Band: Abythic
Title: Dominion of the Wicked
Label: Iron Bonehead Productions
Release date: 12 February 2021
Country: Germany
Format reviewed: High-quality Digital Recording
Style: Death Metal
Time playing: 34:57
Cover/Music: 8/10 – 8/10
Details: After the very good album “Conjuring the Obscure” released in 2019, they release another very good one. Check it.

From my private collection…

Band: Archgoat
Title: Whore of Bethlehem
Label: Debemur Morti Productions
Release date: 2015
Country: Finland

Style: Death Black Metal
Time playing: 35:36

Title: Promo 2016
